CAPTAIN AMERICA (1990) And CYBORG Director Albert Pyun Has Passed Away At The Age Of 69

Sad news for fans of cult filmmaker Albert Pyun, as the director known for the 1990 Captain America movie, Cyborg, The Sword and the Sorcerer and other B-movie favorites has passed away aged 69...

Albert Pyun, a cult filmmaker known for his work on low-budget favorites such as Cyborg, The Sword and the Sorcerer, Nemesis and the 1990 Captain America movie passed away on Saturday in Las Vegas at the age of 69.

Pyun was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and dementia several years ago, and his wife and producer, Cynthia Curnan, had been keeping fans up to date on his condition. Recently, she implored people to share personal messages of support as her husband's health began to decline.

Curnan confirmed the sad news of Pyun's passing on Facebook. "I sat with him for his last breath that sounded like he was releasing the weight of the world."

Pyun made a career out of helming what many considered to be "schlocky" B-movies, but he was also known for being a versatile and endlessly creative filmmaker who was able to maximize the potential of his scripts and get the most out of his limited resources.

Pyun was actually working on two franchise follow, Kickboxer: The Algiers and Cyborg: Rise of the Flesh Eaters, at the time of his death. Hopefully, those projects will still see the light of day at some point.

All our thoughts go out to Pyun's friends and family during this difficult time.
